I could have never slaughtered a live chicken. I freak out at a teeny little spider and call my husband to kill that for me, so a chicken would have been too much. As for cutting up chickens, I probably couldn't do it either since I always buy my chicken already cut into pieces, but these are supposed to be CHEFS. I would think that would be basic skills for a chef. I wish they could have blurred out Jason going into the hot tub. I just watched the recording this morning, and now I will be haunted all day. I had to be glad that Jason screwed up so badly. With all that insulting of women, it was nice to see him screw up and Gordon take him down a peg. He did rightly go home--not knowing the menu, being a screw up in general, and the fact that deserts are one of the easiest things you can cook (in my opinion).
